When Marie-France met with us for the first time last year, we knew this was going to be one special and original wedding.
Her and Clint were planning a late evening cocktail dinatoire reception which they decided to host at one of Montreal’s most prominent art galleries in the Old Port, the Galerie Saint-Dizier on St. Paul street. This being November, the sun sets quite early so Magda and I started getting excited for the opportunity to do a night time photo shoot which we don’t normally do for weddings!
We got a hint of Marie-France and Clint’s originality when they wanted us to come up with an engagement photo session that fit in their theme of beige earthy tones and branches. We got to work right away and on a cooler spring day of this year we took them to some woods so if you missed it last time, click here to see the photos! The theme was continued at their wedding where wedding planner extraordinaire Azar, from Principal Planner, transformed an art gallery into their dreamed up vision. They even had an artist painting on a huge canvas live during the reception and each guest was able to be incorporated into the work of art! Complete with a steel drum band, a horse drawn carriage ride at night and with our photobooth the night was beautiful and something they will remember for the rest of their lives. Oh, and that cake and pushup pops? Those were made by one of Marie-France’s bridesmaids! (don’t tell anyone but I think I had two…)
Marie-France and Clint, we honestly cannot thank you enough for bringing us into your lives to capture this day for you. From the moment we met we admired your dedication to this wedding and we see that this same kind of dedication is also put into your relationship! We got to enjoy your company and learn a little about your touching family memories, saw Clint hold back tears when he received his amazing gift from Marie-France and witness Marie-France’s delicious obsession with Diet Coke! We wish you a fantastic life and we hope you fall in love with your wedding once again after seeing our favourite shots below…
